Music for Mental Health
On June 20, 2012 I posted an 8 hour deadline to submit for a compilation for SP. 19 artists graciously responded. The tracklist can be found in the MP3s. One of the artists summed up what this release means to me, and I hope he will not be upset for my quoting him:
"And thank you once more for your efforts, open mind and enthusiasm, we're all doing great job and contributing to world's culture and any of your creative activities and achievements have been and will be owning my greatest respect and appreciation. The things we're doing - all this underground, unconventional and completely independent production - all this is the purest triumph of art, which is renunciation of any bias in creation, because TRUE art must come straight inside author's mind and must not depend on any stupid conventional terms, and this transcendental creation is the only thing that keeps art alive, its channel to breathe. And the more I want to express my admiration to your job is that doing this creator must be especially mentally strong, not to be confused or have the thought spoiled by strong rejection of narrow-minded mass, which unfortunately do not even come close to the idea of what Art itself is and always to stay inspired and pure in spirit.
Thus, you can always depend on any my support and it would be honour for me if we could cooperate and make something more together in future.
I'm so grateful to you for your will and generosity, keep on doing this for the whole of your life, never stop, because the true artist's ideas never expire, because "everything is art, and art is everything", as my motto is.
In this way we have already written ourselves into the pages of history :)
So I'd like to wish you every success in your life and creation."
I cannot imagine a more important message. Our work is for our own mental health, and our work shows others they are not alone. We do this for ourselves, and we do this for you. I hope the artists who submitted will be proud of this release. I hope those who download this release will be proud of themselves for the qualities that make them human and unique.
Thank you all.
